Drinking and driving over the festive season: how much is too much?

Over the Christmas season there is a lot more drinking and driving resulting in an increase in accidents at this time of year. You might feel like there is little harm in having a few drinks at a social event and then getting into your car to drive home. But this behaviour puts the safety of other drivers and pedestrians at risk, not to mention your own. Added to this, drivers who have too much alcohol in their systems will face the wrath of the law: being over the limit could mean facing six years in jail. We would like all of you to remain safe over the holidays and, with road safety in mind, we put together an infographic to serve as a guideline for drinking safely over the holidays. How much can put you over the legal limit? And how can drinking affect your driving. 

At Avis Fleet we always put you first, we have a range of solutions for all of your driving needs. Find out more about our accident management solution, or get in contact with us if you have any other questions about our services.
